You must have seen many offers of bulk search engine submissions on various forums and classifieds. There are some scripts, which does the submissions for you with just one click. You can submit to 100’s of available search engines with it.
But do you think this is really helpful when it comes to listing your site on search engines. I don’t think so.
Search Engine Submission Script
These scripts are good – nothing bad in it and it is not something related to spam when it comes to SEO. Doing bulk submissions to search engines in one click does save time and effort.
But you should keep a check before submitting your site to all these search engines, something that will really matter.
- You need to have correct URL structure (though this is not much important).
- You need to have Meta-tags such as Meta names and keywords.
- You need to have sitemap installed on your site. Just don’t have only XML maps – include all types of sitemaps – when trying for bulk submission to search engines.
- The pages of your website should be interlinked.
Correcting all the four above-mentioned points will help your website rank better and much needed for search engine crawl. By doing this you achieve the first step in search engine optimization.
Though they are not humans but they have senses, they have brains and they are programmed to act this way and they can easily sense something is not good. Yes search/crawl bots all do have these qualities and that is why you need to very careful with them.
Now the nature of search/crawl bot as we all know is to visit your site and crawl pages, content, and whatever else is available. Now, you can easily make them happy or unhappy.
We all know search/crawl bots are hungry programs designed for the hunt for new content, materials or anything new. Since they don’t find something new happening they will not come to your site.
Therefore, it is much necessary to add something new to your site on consistent basis – as this is the only way you can make the search/crawl bots happy. You can add anything new – whether content, new page, new section, or new image – anything so that search/crawl bots know something is new happening and they will return.
If you not add anything new for days – it will give a clear impression to the search/crawl bots that site is dead and they will automatically skip your site from the crawling list. If once your site is erased from crawling list – it is like starting from the scratch to list it back to the crawling list.
Therefore, it is always advisable to add something new – if you are thinking that how can you do it daily – then stay tuned to my blog – I will post about that also that how can you update your site without sitting in front of computer.
